Those who know the XC track at Offenburg know why the SpeedKing was developed. Hard, dry terrain where only one thing counts: Speed. The semi slick profile offers minimal rolling resistance and weight. The lightly raised outer lugs provide enough grip to maintain good speeds when cornering and the centre area is made up of flat, wedge-shaped lugs which whilst keeping the rolling resistance low, still provide drive when needed. The large 2.2 RaceSport carcass offers reliable puncture protection when racing and can be ridden with lower air pressure. The extreme properties of this tyre have their price: Lower mileage and a limited wet grip - a pedigreed racer - Handmade in Germany!
